Default Front Brake Discs/Pads

Had my tyres changed a few days ago and while the garage done this they informed me my front brake discs are now at the Peugeot recommended of being replaced, I can't remember though what amount of millimeters he said they had left on them.

My car has only done a little under 40,000 miles, so was wondering if it sounds about right?

And how much would you generally expect to pay for replacing the two front discs/pads?

Robins & Day/Peugeot price is 199 inc vat fitted for Peugeot approved parts or 279 for Peugeot parts, both are guaranteed by Peugeot though,

No two cars are the same for brake wear as some may spend there time on motorways racking up the miles without using the brakes much, others are round town and county roads braking for roundabouts and junctions etc.

I got quoted 260 which I thought was a little high for a non-Peugeot garage, but I've never had to have new brakes on a car so wasn't sure to be honest.

I appreciate depending on the driver in general all cars will vary with brakes, but wondered if it seemed about 'average' for a car.
I'd say most my driving has been 50/50 in regards to town and longer/motorway driving since owning the car at 18,000 miles.

He said it was at the 'Peugeot recommended time for change' so how serious is that compared with any regards for safety? I ask as would prefer to get this done later in the year rather than have to do it now (before MOT/service next month).

Just had new pads fitted at 40K miles on my 308 GTI 2015 plate - it was 35 for pads and 30 for labour - at an independent garage. If you google discs they're around 60 each so 199 for new discs and pads doesn't seem too unreasonable. Surprised you need discs though, my mechanic only recommended pads were needed.

The minimum thickness measurement is normally cast in to the disc around the hub area - you could remove the wheels & measure the discs.

Either stay with genuine Peugeot parts or use Brembo or Ferodo.

Obviously the pads needs to be replaced along with the discs & you have to replace the parts in axle sets.

New brakes also need to be bedded in for a few hundred miles - the brake pedal will feel a little softer under foot until bedded in.

It really does come down to how heavy yer right foot is.. Ive been driving for 40yrs now and had my fair share of performance cars and used some..enthusiastic breaking..and had no better results generally from a decent aftermarket part either on stopping distance or brake fade. Your pads/shoes are only as good as the rest of the system. You can put racing Brembo on and your cheap fluid will still boil etc. Just for example.. my front pads are still healthy after 80k and I live in the welsh valleys and spend 40% of my time breaking on declines..

Ugh, quite expensive, huh? Why discs? They are so worn? A few month ago, replacing front pads on my car for aprox. 150.

Pads are quite easy to replace. The only real difficulty is winding the pistons back in. IIRC at that point it's very easy to then replace the discs - although you should slacken off the disc retaining screws earlier while the someone holds the footbrake down.
